There's a place in Hell for Sarah Palin

I want to share with you a direct quote from Sarah Palin:

"There's a place in Hell reserved for women who don't support other women."

Yes, I swear to you she said this and I'll give you video proof in just a moment. To clarify what the governor was talking about, she claims she was quoting former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright. Here's the full quote in context:

"I'm reading on my Starbucks mocha cup, ok? The quote of the day... It was Madeleine Albright, former Secretary of State [crowd boos] and UN ambassador. ... Now she said it, I didn't. She said, 'There's a place in Hell reserved for women who don't support other women.'"

Of course, Albright never said that. In fact, Albright's exact words were "There's a special place in Hell for women who don't help other women." Big damn difference. One implies that if you're a woman that doesn't vote for Sarah Palin, you're going to Hell. The other implies that if you're a woman and you do nothing to help your gender (you know, like Sarah Palin), then you're going to Hell. So if the governor wants to use that quote while running on the ticket that doesn't support a woman's right to choose, equal pay for equal work and all the other women's issues that McCain has voted against over the last 26 years, then I think it's perfectly acceptable to say that Sarah Palin will rot in the fiery pits of hell. Of course, Satan will probably jam his pitchfork through his ears after listening to her talk for about two hours - I could barely survive 90 minutes on Thursday - so while he's recovering, I'm sure she'll find some way to change Hell's constitution and give power to herself.

Once Palin finished delivering another gem, she followed up with a taunt to the media "turning it into" something tomorrow.
Hey governor, they wouldn't make a big deal out of it if you weren't butchering someone's quote to make it sound like anyone that votes against you is anti-woman, I know it's all a game to you, but you sound like an asshole. Oh and you claim you read it on your "Starbucks Mocha," whoa there, Governor, Starbucks? Sounds a bit like a hoity-toity latte-drinking Liberal to me! ELITIST!!!
